Benefits of mentoring

- Noticeable improvements in your own mental health and a stronger connection with society.
- Positively impacting on the lives of others.
- Improvements in softer skills such as active listening and how to give advice rather than answers.
- Exposure to new ways of thinking or learning a new skill, area, trend or technology.
- Opportunity to work with someone in a different industry and/or different generation.
Increased self confidence through reaffirming abilities.
- Recognition of your intellectual capital.

At Next Level Mentoring we do not believe you have to attend a courses that runs over several days and cost thousands of dollars just to get formal mentoring certification.
The most important requirement in mentoring is attitude. Since you are here on this page looking to offer your time to mentor others, we already know you have the right attitude.
Everything else can be taught.
You have your own unique skills within you, and our simple training will help you apply them in the right way.
We offer several different mentoring certificates dependant on your experience of mentoring others. And they are all free to you.
Ready to Mentor
This is issued when the mentor completes the online training, accessed from our website. It demonstrates that the mentor has a good understanding of what mentoring is, what it is not and key skills to be a good mentor. Numerous people have asked for mentoring training and now you can both complete it at your own time on our website... and also be recognised for doing it!
This is when a mentor has successfully mentored someone for several months. This demonstrates that the mentor has put those learned skills to use... and learned more mentoring skills in the process.
This is when a mentor has successfully mentored at least two people, each for several months. The mentor has now experienced two different personalities and would have needed to refine their approach accordingly to ensure they are giving value to each mentee.
This is the top level.
A mentor receives this when they have mentored at least four people with one of these people being in a different industry. This demonstrates that they have worked with a range of personalities, each with their own traits and goals. It also demonstrates that they can mentor people outside their core industry knowledge.
